Small Haul from Canada and Portugal #travel #shopping

DSCN0810 (2)

Shopping in Canada… Paradise!

I didn’t get to go often, but here is my loot! I got myself a Sephora Collection Make No Mistake Foundation Conceiler Stick! It is perfect and gives me almost full coverage, depending on how I apply it! I can even use it as a conceiler around my eyes!


Rainforest of the Sea Drops  were on my wishlist since forever! I remember seeing them on Instagram! Let me tell you… they are as awesome as they appear! I can use them as a moisturising layer on top of my makeup or just as a gentle highlighter! It is very liquid though, so be careful opening and using it so it doesn’t spill! I’d die if it fell over! #calamity lol

Those were my “luxury” purchases! It got a bit more reasonable after that! lol


Bath and Body Works was a must! I went in to pick up a present for my mum and ended up with these lovely candles for myself! They are small, but the smell spreads throughout the apartment!


I also picked up this LUSH bathbomb. It was about 7.00$. Just don’t ask me which flavour it was, all I know is that it smells amazing and I haven’t even tried it yet! I will defile the bathtub asap!

I’ve always wanted to learn Calligraphy so when I found this set for 20.00$ I had to have it! It comes with the pens, ink and a practice book! Loves it!


I picked up these two books to satisfy my inner nerd! The Mammoth Book of the Mafia I got at the airport in Portugal so I didn’t get to take a good picture!


In Lisbon airport I picked up these stickers for 2.00$ at the Accessorize Store! I’ll use them to mark any pet-related activities in my Happy Planner! Too cute!


Finally I couldn’t resist these cute sparkly headphones! However they don’t really sit well in my ears and keep falling out! What a pitty! Or maybe I just need bigger ears? Lol

That’s it for my Small Haul from my trip! I hope you enjoyed it!

Happy Shopping! xoxo! 


One day in Toronto…


We had one day in downtown Toronto as it wasn’t a major sightseeing trip, but we still managed to see a few things! The CN Tower being one of them! Beautiful! #nofilter


The sky while driving into town was beautiful too! There’s nothing quite like Canadian sunsets!


What could have been…, The Palm on Yonge Street! At one point I viewed the model suites here, but then I ended up moving to Spain! Now I wish I’d just bought the condo!


Driving through town, still on Yonge Street! So many new condos! I love it!

Random fact from Wikipedia: Apparently Yonge street isn’t the longest street in the world! It is only 86 km long! Who knew! #calamity If you wish to read the entire article I’ll insert the link here; Yonge Street Actual Facts


Just a random shot from the parking garage! Can you spot the CN Tower?


Once we got downtown, we saw the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. I haven’t stayed here yet, but I hear it’s fantastic! Maybe next trip?


Here’s a view of the city I love!


Something out of this world! I have no idea where I took this picture, but it’s gorgeous!

Here’s a link to the video of driving downtown if you want to visualise…

Happy Holidays and Catch those Flights! xoxo

My favourite blog at the moment is Becca’s blog at Beccapbeauty ! It’s beautifully designed and the pictures are always gorgeous! It makes me want to run out and buy all the products! Not only does it feature beautiful pictures and great reviews of new and unusual products, it’s also includes lifestyle posts about vegan food and animal friendly brands which is something I love!

10 Random Facts about me:

  1. My real name is Alice, but all my social media is Yatsina… it happened randomly so now I guess I’ll stick with it…
  2. I am Canadian, Austrian and Jamaican!

5-10 Blogs I’d like to nominate… 

Most blogs I follow are not new…but here are the ones I’d like to nominate for the award!


Le Paradis de Noemie

Makeup She Said

The Estella Initiative

Siez The Day

Here are the instructions for if you are nominated for the award;

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and put a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.

2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.) At the bottom of this post, I’ve included a whole lot of images you can use for your 2017 Liebster Award.

3. For the 2017 Liebster Award, I will be shaking things up! Write a 150-300 word post about your favourite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog, provide links.

4. Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (This year I’m making this optional. If you wish to engage with your readers it’s a great idea to include random facts about you.)

5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)

Thank you again for the nomination! And Happy Cybering!
